About the Author

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana, and has lived in Denver, Colorado, and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multigenerational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland, and Kristen grew up listening to the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon, and Whitesnake.
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

This is good Kristen Ashley storytelling. It's strange, I can't read her books one after another because the main characters are basically the same in all her stories and therefore you feel like you've read the dialogue before - you have in the previous KA book!

However, the stories are all really good so when I hit a literary 'lull', I will go see what KA has released - I know it'll be a good story, the male lead will be dominant and a lot of the dialogue will be 'babe', they'll both get 'pissed' at each other a lot and the lead female will whisper a lot. They'll eat strange american food like 'biscuits', pigs in blankets with biscuit dough?????? (had to ask an american starbucks waitress here in the UK what that's all about), and the male lead will have built his own home and I will fall in love with it!!

Your in safe hands with this author but no surprises when you've read one of her novels.

Wow, that's one of the best books I've read in a long time. It's fast paced, full of twists and turns, and characters that you just can't help falling in love with. It's not a short read either, I think my Kindle said it was a 7hr book, effectively it's the length of a whole trilogy, but the action never seems to stop.

Most of the book only actually covers a two week period, and as one of the characters points out it's just like a soap opera, I thought it was better than that though.

The fireworks between Max and Nina are hilarious at times, and the constant interruptions to their plans are funny as well, but this book isn't just about humour, it covers some pretty dark topics such as domestic violence, rape, disability and suicide, and does so in a sensitive and well written manner.

The book is like a spiders web, all the different stories and characters branching out, and at the heart of it there's Nina, she's strong, opinionated, loyal, kind and a bloody good heroine.

I'll definitely be looking for other books from this author.

I've heard a lot of people talk about Kristen Ashley books and they have been on my TBR pile for sometime, but I've just never gotten around to them. Recently several of my book friends said I had to read them. So I dove into The Gamble.

From the first chapter I knew I was going to like this book, the writing seemed to flow well and it seemed so easy to read. Although it is a longer book than my usual reads It didn't seam that way and I lost all sense of time as I got sucked in.

The book is told from the POV of Nina. Nina is on holiday in the Colorado mountains from England. Well actually she is taking a time out from her fiancé, Niles to think about her life and their relationship. She has rented a mountain house to stay in for two weeks whilst she gets her head together. Driving up the mountain in a snow storm, and not feeling 100% well she can't wait to get there and just crawl into bed.

Unfortunately when she gets there there's been a mistake and the house is occupied, apparently by the owner who is very rude and tells her there is a hotel down the mountain. They have heated words and Nina ends up driving down the mountain, unfortunately her car slides off the road and she gets stuck. Climbing in the back seat she tries to go to sleep until someone can rescue her in the morning.

Lucky for her, Max, the owner finds her shortly after, she is now very ill and has a fever so Max takes her back to his house. She's out for two days and Max nurses her back to health. Once she is awake, she decides that she cant stay with Max and tries to leave. Max isn't having any of it and says she has to stay whilst she is recovering.

I enjoyed this book, it was easy to read and moved along nicely. What annoyed me though, was the constant repetitions...there were way too many instances of "sorry?" and "Max..." and a lot of repeated back sentences! Also, the lack of "if" and "me/you" in the Coloradian (not sure if that's what they're called!) people took a bit of getting used to.
But overall, I did enjoy the story and the characters (I also liked the age of the main characters, made a change for them not to be in early 20's!) - the location sounded wonderful and I'll give another one of her books a try as this is the first one I've read by her.

Nina Sheridan, was taking a two week time out from her fiance Niles, she had left England her adopted home, to travel to Colorado just outside the small town of Gnaw Bone where she had booked a two week stay in a beautiful "A frame house". Only when she arrives she finds that the owner is in residence, telling her there had been a mix up and she would need to go back into town to stay at the hotel. Furious and feeling ill after seventeen hours of travel she begins to wonder if this time out was such a good idea. Holden Maxwell the owner of the house phones the hotel some time later to check she had arrived okay, as it was snowing heavily and late at night. When he was told she had not arrived he goes out to look for her only to discover her car in a ditch, and her comatose on the back seat.
When Nina wakes it's to find she has been very ill, and is back at the "A frame house" being looked after by the handsome owner.
I loved this story the interactions between Max and Nina were brilliant, she is feisty and funny, while Max is laid back but very dominant and protective, Nina just thinks he's bossy. He thinks she's cute especially when she loses her temper. As usual with this author there are a plethora of interesting characters who live in the town. There is plenty going on in this story, that keeps the reader turning the pages. This is the first in the Colorado Mountain series the others areSweet Dreams and Lady Luck (Colorado Mountain Series).
